Default [Q] 'Dock Mode' and Magnetic Charging

Does anyone else have the same issues with their Xperia Z Ultra? When I connect my phone to a magnetic charging cable, the app that I'm currently in refreshes. The phone thinks it is being docked and the screen auto rotates as well.

i have the dk30 dock and use smart connect to auto open a clock. so you could set it to do nothing within smart connect. try that

Hamdogg! You are EVERYWHERE and always helping people. Did you get your phone back from service? I love your videos btw. I've lurked too long here without posting.

And, I actually want the phone to do nothing when I connect it to the charger. If I'm browsing chrome while the phone is on charge, and I accidentally disconnect the cable, the entire page refreshes. If I'm playing a game or watching a movie, and I'm running low on charge and connect the magnetic cable, then the entire app refreshes and I lose all progress.

I have a feeling it is an Android thing, it treats 'Docking' as some kind of special event, and was wondering if someone could figure out a way to disable it, in their custom rom or through an Xposed module. This is a very specific request, I can imagine, because very few people will have phones with magnetic charging ports and even fewer will use it to charge their phone on a regular basis.

LOL... well, thats what XDA is all about... Thats what I think its about anyway.
Thanks for watching my videos. Gotta try and help if you can..

I'll look into it with my ROM and see what the device is doing when its docks. It may just be a simple titanium backup 'freeze' that would stop it.
Actually try that. freeze sony connect and then dock the ultra and see what happens.

got my phone back a week before xmass... 8 weeks away! man that was a killer!

I can't find a 'Sony Connect' in Titanium Backup.

Actually I'm not sure if it will be as simple as that. Because I experienced the same refreshing issue and auto rotate issue when I was using PA as well.

What you are describing is controlled by setting/display/daydream.

Even with Daydream turned off I'm experiencing the same refreshing and autorotate effect. And I can't seem to find any way to freeze daydream in titanium backup.

I hate this, guess it's give & take without having to remove case/un fasten usb seal everytime to charge! I've learned to be extremely careful, but one slip &....

& I believe I set it to do nothing the first time I connected the dock charger, & before I deleted the app it still refreshed & rotated
